Folks---pay attention here.
Three of the four dresses listed are very lightweight material--cotton lawn and other semi sheers. These are light, thin, airy dresses, less than half the weight of most dresses we see at reenactments.
This means they are cooler. And yes, that v-neck is correct. The original dress is in Atlanta.
For any of you going to Gettysburg next summer, if these fit you, buy em now. You'll be glad you did.
For you men who read the forum, point this ad out to your wife. Happy Wife = Happy Life
And if they fit me, well, I wouldn't be sewing my own.
How tall was the woman who wore these dresses? My wife is short.
I am the woman who wore these dresses. I am 5'4" tall. Item #4 is unhemmed; the other 2 summer weight dresses have turned under hems rather than faced hems and can easily be shortened.

I wish I was a little smaller and you were a little bigger. #2 and #4 are great styles and my first choice in fabric. One day I'll have one like them. I agree with Mrs. Lawson. Men..your wife would like these for the summer.
